  • If you have had back pain for weeks, then it could be just your spine is out of whack. I am to the point today, that I can barely walk it hurts so bad. You can get a chiropractor to adjust you still.
    If you are in labor, your stomach will be getting tighter... you would be able to feel it clench and unclench in a pattern. You would time them just as you would "normal" (non-back labor) contractions.

  • I had back labor.. I know what it feels like. If you place your hands on your stomach, you can feel it tense. I couldn't feel contractions without placing my hands on my belly.
